Mental Health Professional Dismissed Complaint Colorado Open Records Act Access
Under current law, when a complaint against a mental health professional is dismissed, information contained in the files of a mental health professional regulatory board is exempt from disclosure under the open records law. The bill allows a mental health professional who is a respondent to a dismissed complaint to access the information contained in the division of professions and occupations's and applicable regulatory boards' files. The names of the respondent's clients and other recipients of services, and any other information that would identify an individual person, must be redacted from the information provided to the respondent.
